Sacred Heart Catholic Church
Assumption Catholic Church
The “Prayer Chain” was started back in
January 1990 by Mary Holtgraver.
Junie Holtgraver, her son, was
diagnosed with cancer and several
churches within the area asked if they could put him on their “prayer chain”.
Junie is a cancer survivor.
Mary wanted to get a Prayer Chain started for our church so she went to Father
Andalikiewiez, and asked permission to start a “prayer chain”, of which he gladly
gave and put her in charge.
Mary then went to the Altar Society and presented her request getting the prayer
chain started. She needed 3 people to help with the calling, and they are still
calling. Mary has since stopped calling because of her age, but she is still the
person to call to have a name put on the list.
The Prayer Chain was opened to all, not just Catholics. Anyone can be put on
the Prayer Chain. This is not just for medical reasons. Anyone that needs extra
prayers for any reason can be put on the list.
To date they have over 1,000 people on the list. No one is ever deleted.
Quite a legacy Mary created that helps so many.
